White House Focuses on Made in America Campaign….

The White House is unveiling a renewed focus on products ‘Made in America‘.  Understandably those who oppose the overall America-First agenda immediately react to the effort by pointing out many of the Trump branded products are made overseas.   However, many of those detractors miss the larger issue, while simultaneously their antagonistic efforts actually help the messaging campaign.

The larger America-First economic platform, and the ancillary ‘Made-in-America’ message, are targeted toward economic policy; the bigger picture.  The goal is to make national policy reflect a “better option” for companies and manufacturers to produce products in the United States.

As long as the best business model for any company is to outsource manufacturing, that will be the outcome.   The America-First policy objective is to change the underlying policy which in turn changes the business model for companies; making American product manufacturing the more cost effective approach.

The key economic message is always within the “why”?  Why do companies make U.S. market products overseas?  Focus policy on the why, and natural fair market economics will self-correct.

Often those discussing jobs and manufacturing argue the driver of production is “cheap labor”.  However, those making that argument also cite increased “automation” in manufacturing.  These two arguments are mutually exclusive. If modern manufacturing is now heavily automated the ‘cheap labor’ argument holds far less merit.

Today, President Donald J. Trump will host companies from across the country at the White House for the Made in America Product Showcase.

The White House is highlighting and celebrating each state’s effort and commitment to American made products by bringing in and showing off products from all 50 states that are made and produced in the United States.

The Trump Administration is honoring the incredible workers and companies who make “Made in America” the world standard for quality and craftsmanship.

America is a nation that honors the work of gifted and skilled tradespeople, but for too long our government has forgotten the American workers. Their interests were pushed aside for global projects and their wealth was taken from their communities and shipped overseas.

Under the leadership of President Trump, not only will the American worker never be forgotten, but they will be championed. President Trump has offered a new vision: the well-being of the American citizen and worker will be placed second to none.

President Trump has been fighting on behalf of American workers and families since the first day of his Presidency. The President signed a ‘Buy American and Hire American’ Executive Order that targets the abusive use of waivers and exceptions to undermine ‘Buy American’ laws that promote the allocation of taxpayer funds to American companies.

The order also takes steps to stop the abuse of the immigration system and protect American workers. The President is committed to preserving American jobs for American citizens.

The President has also taken steps to ensure that Americans are equipped with the tools necessary to thrive in the modern economy. He signed an Executive Order to promote and create more flexible apprenticeship programs that arm American workers with valuable skills.

President Trump has taken decisive action to free America’s energy potential and create jobs in areas that need them the most. He has approved the construction of new energy pipelines, allowed for the exportation of coal, increased liquefied natural gas exports, and withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord.

Unnecessary and burdensome regulations stifle economic growth and harm American workers. The President has repeatedly taken action to remove burdensome regulations so businesses can build in America.

President Trump signed an Executive Order stipulating that for every regulation signed into law, two regulations must be eliminated and he has begun the process of reducing permitting time for infrastructure projects from 10 years to 2. The American Action Forum estimates that President Trump has already saved the United States $60 billion through regulatory rollback.

President Trump knows that America first means putting American workers first.

        Off topic. Really! How about stopping these H2B visas for LANDSCAPERS and hire local. I would think that would be a part of MAGA. Guess what, the employers will have to pay a decent wage. The only purpose for this visa is for a business to pay their employees the lowest possible wage. Maybe if these businesses spent less money trying to influence congress swamp dwellers and more on their employees it would not be such a problem.

        I am all for seasonal job carve outs, such as for agricultural harvests as these are short windows of work. But not for these “blue collar” jobs they are talking about here.

        As for time to work this out, how about the administration telling Ryan that we will take a look at your visa request once we see a finished healthcare bill.

      rf, generally those on this type of visa are well educated and Silicon Valley loves them and having to pay less. However, on the other hand Trump sees the problem and his solution is for “apprentice” schools is to bring our citizens up to par electronically whether in Silicon Valley electronics or the electronics now used in car repair, restaurants, and so many other places. This means getting off the cellphone addiction to learning real electronic work and hence they will be hired. Some companies already have this plan and it is working out extremely well economically for them. What bugs me is that these visa owners “forget” to re-register or leave when they should. Living in Mexico for years they knew every moment and every day where I was, and so we need to keep tract of these invited visa users as well and if not renewables or just disappear, then we lose. Write Kelly as every secretary has a website now because Trump is really into transparency, and give your opinion or suggestion. In other words, we can complain but if we don’t do anything, then our arguments are useless. You can also contact Trump at whitehouse.gov/contact#page or
      potus45@wh.com and be a real part of draining swamps.

    A lot of US manufacturing jobs move to places like Mexico and China because those governments will deliberately keep their workers wages low by devaluing their currency against the dollar. This makes it almost impossible to ship any US goods into those countries.

    In 1994, and prior to NAFTA, the Peso was equivalent to about 23 cents US, now it’s about a nickel and poverty in Mexico hasn’t budged an inch (still just over 50%). The transnational corporations game these multilateral trade deals and move labor to wherever it’s cheapest. A good article called Make the Peso Great Again.

          Treasures of the White House: Steinway Grand Piano

          938.1287.1

          At a ceremony on December 10, 1938, this grand piano was presented to President Franklin D. Roosevelt for the White House by Mr. Theodore Steinway, on behalf of the Steinway family. The 300,000th Steinway piano, it was built to replace another Steinway at the White House – #100,000, a gilded and painted grand piano which had been given in 1903 (now on exhibit in the Smithsonian Institution).

          Seeking to create a unique and distinguished “State Piano”, Eric Gugler – a New York architect, friend of the Roosevelts, and White House consultant in the 1930s – chose a square form with simpler lines than the routine double-curve form. The case was made of fine Honduran mahogany. Although it measures seven inches longer than the standard nine-foot Steinway grand, it has identical musical works.

          At Mr. Steinway’s suggestion Dunbar Beck, a muralist, executed the gold leaf decoration representing “five musical forms indigenous of America” – a New England barn dance; a lone cowboy playing his guitar; the Virginia reel; two black field hands, one clapping and one dancing; and an Indian ceremonial dance. Albert Stewart, a sculptor, executed the three gilded mahogany legs carved as American eagles.

          Since the musical works had deteriorated somewhat, the piano was returned to the manufacturer in 1979 for a major rebuilding of the instrument within its historic case. Although used in the East Room from its presentation to 1989, since then it has stood principally in the Entrance Hall, where it is often played by members of the Marine Band during social functions.

    His speech and “made in America” proclamation signing was so fun to watch! They are in such a good mood at the White House.

    Gee, I just saw this:

    Department of Homeland Security on Monday announced a one-time increase of 15,000 additional visas for low-wage seasonal workers!

    Why is Trump doing this during “made in America Campaign!” I thought Trump was going to get tough about not importing illegals.

    Is he breaking a campaign promise? I know, I know, some of you guys will say “everything Trump does is heavenly”. But, in his rallies he said he was going to use USA citizens , and give the jobs to USA people.

    Need to throw some serious money into 3D Printing manufacturing. For the first time, it is now possible to 3D print metal alloys. That means additive instead of subtractive. Instead of taking a block of metal and cutting out what you don’t need, you 3D print it from powdered alloy. You don’t waste any raw material and unused material can be simply used later.

    From an engineering point of view, it’s not perfect for everything but it’s getting better all the time. Pratt & Whitney had early 3D printing technology in use 30 years ago to create molds where they previously did it with wood by hand, built a ceramic mold around it then cut the mold and removed the wood. Then they filled the mold with molten alloy and made parts until the mold wore out then they replaced the mold. They are likely printing the ceramic molds and not just the inverse to create the mold. Now they can potentially build the part from scratch using a 3D printing process. Again, it won’t be good for everything but new 3D printable materials are growing fast.

    Another field of manufacturing is materials science. Coming up with new materials, new alloys, new carbon nanotube designs, microfibers, etc., etc. This is already making big strides in battery technology. Those exploding Lithium Ion batteries may soon be manufactured differently. Saw a science show on one material design that you could punch a nail through a charged battery and it wouldn’t short out and explode like normal Lithium Ion materials.

    I bet there were some no-brainers for choices of companies like Gibson and Chick-fil-a.

    I find it odd that in all of MA all they could find was a Horseshoe company. I bet there were other companies, they just didn’t want the bad publicity (slightly sarcastic, but it is MA). I grew up there and 20 years ago could have named 50 companies within 20 miles of me were they were producing everything in the USA. Now most of them are gone.

    Just maybe when someone does the math for production overseas compared to in the USA, as they add imported raw materials, shipping of raw materials, logistics, foreign government subsidies supporting government industry, the shipping cost of products over oceans and borders, the on loading and off loading of the transporting device, of goods that must be re-loaded again and off loaded for destinations inland they will find out those overseas products are very, very expensive.

    NAFTA=national amounts from taxpayers accounts. To hidden elites both foreign and domestic.

    Game over!

    For all the money that was given to car manufactures, I CANNOT believe that none of them are “Made in America” and could be showcased. How great would that have been to see a brand new, shiny, American Muscle sitting on the lawn with PDJT sitting in it, asking about 1/4mile speeds!
